We offer three one-year fellowship opportunities at the CHRISTUS Health Texas A&M Family Medicine Residency Program. We have a well respected ACGME accredited Geriatric fellowship that prepares one for taking care of the aging population. Two of our faculty have CAQ’s in Geriatrics and run a local nursing home. A Hospital Medicine fellowship offers additional experience in taking care of hospitalized patients through a busy inpatient service and longitudinal ICU experience. The Obstetrical fellowship allows increased experience with high risk OB, surgical obstetrics and other operative procedures. All of these fellowships enhance the educational experience of our residency.
